WORKWEAR CARE INSTRUCTIONS

LAUNDRY’S AN ART – MAKE SURE YOU WASH SMART

WASHING
All our garments are properly tested. Each of our garments has its own washing instructions, and it’s important to follow these. If a garment is washed with similar colours and at the recommended temperature, it will stay looking good for longer. “wash separately”  in the washing instructions means that the colour of the fabric may run – for these garments, which may initially have a little extra dye, it is particularly important to follow the washing guide.

PREWASH
Use the same amount of detergent as in the main wash cycle when prewashing very dirty clothes, but skip the prewash cycle completely for less dirty garments. Soaking garments is not recommended due to the damage which undissolved detergent can do to fabrics.

DETERGENT
Always be sure to use the correct amount of detergent – see the detergent packaging. Choose a bleach free detergent which is suitable for the temperature of the wash.

DRYING
Only tumble dry as a last resort – if you have enough time and space, hanging garments out to dry is recommended as this is better for your clothes. Smooth out the fabric and the seams before hanging up a garment. When tumble drying, the garment should never be completely dried, as this causes unnecessary wear and can cause shrinkage

SHOES CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Store the clean shoes in a dry and ventilated area when they are not being used. Make sure that the shoes are intact before each time of use. Clean regularly using a brush, rag or similar. Treat the leather regularly by using a suitable, for example, grease, wax or silicon based shoe polish. Do not use aggressive products (petrol, acids, solvents etc) tha can jeopardise the quality, safety and durability of the safety footwear. Do not dry the shoes close to or in contact with fireplaces, central heating systmes or other heat sources.

GLOVE CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Store the gloves in a cool and dry area. The gloves properties may be affected by air humidity, temperature and strong sunlight.  Clean the leather gloves by using a mild solution of soap and water and rubbing the gloves against each another. Leave the gloves to air dry. See below for further washing instructions.
